Soprano and baritone will perform for victims

SHARE Soprano and baritone will perform for victims

Soprano Heidi Grant Murphy and baritone Thomas Hampson are part of a New York Philharmonic memorial concert for the victims of last week's terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

The Thursday concert, which replaces what was to have been the Philharmonic's opening-night gala, also features the New York Choral Artists and The American Boychoir. It will be conducted by Kurt Masur, the orchestra's music director.

The New York Philharmonic will perform Brahm's "A German Requiem" at Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall.

Proceeds from the concert will be donated to the disaster relief effort.
